In my opinion if a pup from a litter of mals turns out to be a suitable family (normal family) pet, that breeding should never be made again. I just walked in from squirrel hunting with my 10 year old bitch and she still has to be checked into decent range, and kept from digging coons out of brush piles. She'll still take a fingernail if your not careful with the tug. She handles as well as any dog out there but will not tolerate unfair corrections or civil aggression from any other animal that tries her. She is my house pet, is extremely affectionate, and loves to be lavished with attention, but I would never leave her alone with a kid or any adult that I felt couldn't handle her. She's a patrol wash with low end drives from a good to mediocre breeding. I tend to think she's kinda easy on the eyes, even with the ghastly "ear set".

Heck, the belgians had a pretty big falling out over this a few decades back, but even the show folks stuck with ring.
